R. Crumb tackles The Bible...
The latest issue of The New Yorker contains a twelve page article on R. Crumb's illustrated version of "The Book of Genesis". There's one page of text, with a few comments and an 11 page strip. Looks interesting. I'm always amazed by Crumb's simple storytelling; he only moves the camera in and out. Very few overhead views or up shots.
And there's also the cover- "Future Generations" by Dan Clowes.
